Just wondering if anyone has been out hunting the sobs this week. I don't think I'm gonna be able to make it out until Monday, so I wonder if there will be anything left after this cold snap. I live in Minot and generally go northwest or northeast for snows, but i'm guessing it's probably about over.

If someone could help me out I won't have to burn a day of vacation to go find a bunch of frozen water. I'll just change my plan and go south after the big boys. Thanks.

The majority of the birds are still north of the border. The best numbers I've seen are on Lake Darling near the Grano bridge. That's pretty close from Minot. Kenmare's Goosefest is going on this weekend, and Des Lacs numbers are miserable, so I expect a lot of pressure around Darling.

Good luck.

just got back and we saw pretty good numbers of snows north of Church's Ferry and by Cando. Also Lake Alice looked good too. In that area just look in the sky and you'll see geese.

Otter 69 , Turf is talking about alice lake up by Devils lake, not alice the town. And any geese that are around Alice ND are getting jumped non stop, so many hunters from fargo go to that area, I would stay awy from the WPA east of alice.

Definately, we gave it a look and saw 2 boats on it. Not worth it competing with people for jumpy birds. We headed up to the Alsen area and had a decent hunt.
